The selection of students is based on whether or not the applicant meets the general eligibility requirements for studies within the Hanken Master's Degree Programme, as well as on an evaluation made by the academic representatives of each programme.

The academic evaluation is based on the following criteria:

  1. The applicant's academic background (75 %) based on the scope, content and success in the previous studies which are relevant for the the intended programme. GMAT or GRE score is taken into account if applicable.
  2. The applicant's suitability for Master's degree studies at Hanken (25%), based on the applicant's study motivation (interest in employment in the sector, serious application) and how the applicant would contribute to the programme.

The academic evaluation is completed using a scale of 1.00-5.00 and the applicants are ranked for admission based on the total score.

Note! 

  • When you apply to the Master's degree programme in International Strategy and Sustainability, your application is first and foremost considered for admission to the programme.
  • If you are accepted into the programme, it is thereafter checked if you could also be considered for the Double Degree (if you have marked that you are interested in the Double Degree on the application form).
